After Simon Cowell stole his wife Lauren Silverman and knocked her up, Andrew Silverman preferred to stay quiet and let the drama dissipate.

However, the wealthy real estate mogul has finally come forward to give his side of the story, and shockingly he’s not out for blood.

Andrew told the New York Observer, “It was a very difficult time in my life. I learned a lot, moved forward. My core business has continued to move forward. I learned a lot about myself as an individual, the importance of family. My focus has been on my son throughout the whole ordeal.”

And while Lauren’s new family has definitely complicated things for Silverman and their eight-year-old son, they’ve managed to maintain their sanity. “I think for both of us, making sure our son has a normal environment is the primary focus.”

Furthermore, Andrew affirmed that Mr. Cowell doesn’t make him feel jealous- “Being in the public spotlight is not something I envy. It’s never been my way. Privacy has tremendous value. I’ve tried to be as quiet as possible even though everyone wants to hear about this hoopla.”

As for the future, “I just wanted to refocus on what I do. I am a regular person, not a tabloid thing. It was a fascinating experience, unexpected and shocking.”
